    Default RIM Quietly Adds Support for OS 4.5 and Up to BlackBerry Messenger 7 w/BBM Voice

    Ready to click the green phone anytime ?
    Back on December 10 2012ResearchIn Motion released BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) v7.0.0.126. When BBM version 7.0.0.126 hit BlackBerry World there was only support for OS 6, 7 and 7.1 devices. It seem as though RIM has quietly added support for OS 4.5 and higher now. BBM 7 includes BBM Voice which allows for FREE WiFi calling to any of your BBM contacts that have it installed on their BlackBerry smartphone. Hit the break for more.

    *Update* According to a few sources BBM 7 with BBM Voice is still not supported on OS 4.5, 5 (Although RIM is working on legacy support). We made a mistake in posting this article and are very sorry for the confusion.
    EDIT 2 :
    As TW by BlackBerryHelp this morning, it seems that this info ... well ... isn't.

    Quite generous of RIM to develop support for such old devices with BlackBerry 10 right around the corner - good on them!

    I've got a Curve 8530 with OS 5, and still not seeing it. App world says BBM is now not supported by my device. :|

    Okay so even if support is added, are there any OS 4.5 or 5 phones out there that have wifi antennas? Don't you have to have wifi for BBM voice?

    Yes, the 85XX series has wifi, I think some of the 83XX series does too.

    For information :

    8820 has wifi
    8320 has wifi
    8520 has wifi
    9000 has wifi
    9300 has wifi

    so yes a lot of blackberries with OS 4.5, 4.6, 5 have wifi and will take advantage of the voice possibility of the new BBM
